Chick-fil-A has selected Greensboro (along with 3 other cities) selected to test new “family style” meals, with the possibility of rolling out the new menu options across the country. Family-style meals include an entree, two sides, and eight mini rolls to serve four people. You can upgrade the meal by adding entrees and sides to serve additional people.  The meals start at $29.99. Customer feedback will determine if the meals will be added to menus across the country.  The new meals and a few new side items are being tested in Greensboro, Phoenix, and San Antonio through Nov 18.    https://goo.gl/H1u46E

The entree options include chicken strips (12-count), original Chick-fil-A chicken breasts (4-count), nuggets (30-count), and grilled chicken breasts (4-count). Side options include bacon baked beans, fruit cup, mac & cheese, side salad, and the “Superfood Side.”

 

Experts: Get out of the office.  According to a new study, we concentrate better and feel less stressed when we fully detach from work and enjoy a real ‘lunch break’. Many Americans work right through lunch with the excuse, “Hey, if I just finish this project, it will be out of my hair and then I can relax…”

But a new study suggests that this is the wrong approach.

It turns out that taking a deliberate break from work with a short walk in the park or a bit of mindful relaxation can have powerful effects on our end-of-day concentration, stress, and fatigue.   https://goo.gl/eMS5Jg

Update: The latest Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare has collapsed overnight. Two more GOP senators announced they were not supporting the latest bill.   For now, it appears that “different plan” will be an attempt to simply get rid of (or repeal) Obamacare now and work on a replacement later.  *Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is now seeking a “…two-year delay to provide for a stable transition period to a patient-centered health care system that gives Americans access to quality, affordable health care.” https://goo.gl/rn5Ykj

 

Will restaurants accept “The Visa Cashless Challenge”?

The credit card company is offering restaurants in the US $10,000 dollars …if they stop accepting cash. The plan is to convince small business restaurants, cafés and food trucks to stop accepting cash, forcing customers to pay with credit cards or digital payments. If a restaurant opts in, it’ll get a $10,000 dollar (gift) from Visa to help pay for technology upgrades. On the flip side: Those credit card fees can majorly cut into the margins of a mom + pop business.  Fees for credit card transactions can cost businesses up to 5% of their revenue.   https://goo.gl/8kxQ4Y
